Hey. I have two boys, ages 2 and 4. I am small (5' 3" and 114 lbs) After having kids, my skin was very lax and I got a ton of BAD stretch marks. A friend of mine introduced me to some products. I thought, "this wont work." But I had a party for her, and the results were amazing. People have told me that I will need a tummy tuck but I don't want to spend that kind of money or undergo all the side effects. I was so amazed by the body slimming applicator that I decided to sell them. They're cheap for what you get. I use them about once every week or two and they work wonders...have helped my stretch marks a lot and tightened my skin a lot. Feel free to visit my website and purchase there. If you have any questions, feel free to call or e-mail me. The website is www.itworks.net/bscott. I would appreciate your business and I know you'll appreciate the results. We have stretch mark cream and defining gel as well. So check it out. Also, people will tell you every day not to tan your skin...but i've found that it helps some with camoflauging the imperfections. Plus your skin needs vitamin D which primarily comes from the sun during peak hours. :) Hope this helps. And be proud of your youngins!

My sister didnt have the same extreme weight loss asyou but still has the loose skin around her belly after her baby. She has triedanumber of differentcreams etc but nothing seems to have worked. She is very conscious about it but is wary about getting it 'lifted' yet as she hopes to have another baby at some point in her future. The truth is that skin only has so much elasticity in it so surgery is pretty much the only option for getting rid of it (as far as I know). Congrats on the weight loss though!!! :)

My daughter has the same problem. She even has problems with getting yeast infections in her belly button. She is so beautiful now, until she disrobes. She can't wear a two piece swimsuit, and if she wears tight jeans, she has a large roll over the top. The doctors have told her the only way to get rid of it is surgery. Unfortunately, the insurance company says this is cosmetic surgery and won't cover the cost. My sister just had a tummy tuck, and she has had major pain. I think I would do one area at a time instead of a whole body lift at once. Please get referrals of patients he's done surgery on and call them. My sister didn't as her chiropractor recommended this doctor, and her incision is rough and uneven. She said she would be ashamed for a man to see her, (she is older and divorced.) Good luck!

I had the same issue after I had my son...I'm pregger again and can't wait for it to fill out, crazy as it sounds. I was told by my family doc that the only way to get rid of the flab is plastic surgery. So after this baby, if my husband still insists this is the last one, I will be scheduling a tummy tuck and breast lift. I hate the idea of it, but I want my body back! I have a GF that just went through the tummy tuck and said it wasn't too bad. Good luck on everything! :D
